sambar masala








Sambar Masala Powder

1 cup- coriander seeds
1/4cup- Bengal gram (chana dal)
1/4 cup- Split black gram (urad dal - you may skip this, but I added)
1 tsp- methi dana
2 sprigs- curry leaves
1tsp-mustard seeds
2tsp- cumin seeds (jeera)
2tsp- black pepper corns
3 - cinnamon sticks (dalchini)
1/2-1 cup- dry red chilli ( I added 1/2cup)
1 tsp- turmeric (haldi)

sambar powder



  • Roast coriander seeds. 
  • Then roast dals separately. 
  • Roast curry leaves. 
  • Roast all the remaining spices (except haldi). 
  • Let the roasted spices cool down. 
  • Grind all spices together. 
  • Add haldi. 
  • Some sambar recipes use dry coconut as well.
  •  If you want, you can add 4 tsp dry coconut powder to the sambar masala. I did not add coconut.

The authentic sambar masala recipes use coconut.

I prefer to add fresh coconut along with sambar powder to the recipe.


Sambar is a delectable blend of vegetables and lentils. It is a health food, since it uses little oil and is a blend of boiled vegetables.
